The 12.1-inch Averatec 2371 laptop runs Vista and AMD

While we don't have any clear word on when or if to expect Averatec's 6700 laptop we just spotted to hit the States, things are a bit more promising with the Averatec 2371, which the company is also announcing today. The ultraportable is a slight bump to the 2300 line we spotted last year, and Averatec's first laptop for the States running Vista. Along with Home Premium, the 2371 runs 1GB of RAM, a 120GB HDD, dual-layer DVD burner, 802.11b/g WiFi, an ExpressCard/54 slot and a 4-in-1 card reader -- not too bad for a 1.3-inch thick, 4 pound, 12.1-incher. The screen runs at 1280 x 800, and there's a 1.6GHz AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-52 processor under the hood. Prices range from $900 to $950.
